Default Re: worlds largest "super-volcano"ready to blow in yellowstone

Sweet. I have a front row seat.

How old is this article? Haven't heard of anything being closed to the public in Jellystone, its business as usual. They just opened up the roads for bike travel last week.

We only live about a 3 hour drive from the west entrance of the park, West Yellowstone. We were there year before last and felt a 5.6 quake that was centered out of Butte, MT.

If you look at the map of Idaho you can see the path of eruptions over the millions of years. From where Yellowstone is now to almost Boise, there's a swath of flat looking area right through the state. The plates move so far over the years, then it blows, leveling everything.

Must be another panic article.
